Shear crazy on a Wacky school day

STUDENTS at Pottsville Beach Public School were delighted to see their favourite teachers shave their hair for charity yesterday.

Squeals of laughter echoed from the school hall as seven teachers and staff went under the clippers for the World's Greatest Shave.

All students made a donation to participate in Wacky Hair Day with coloured hair bands, wash-out dyes and sparkly gels.

Principal Debra McKinnon reminded the students that although they were having fun, it was important to remember the serious message behind the celebrations.

“We're going to have lots of fun, we've been looking forward to this, but boys and girls we need to realise and remember it is for a very serious and important reason,” Mrs McKinnon said.

“The reason is the Leukemia Foundation. It is for those families that have boys and girls or mums and dads with blood cancer or who sadly have died from blood cancer, and the Leukemia Foundation knows we need a lot more money to research why people get leukemia and what we can do to cure it.”

The school had raised $2800 yesterday afternoon with donations continuing to come in.
